Veset Nimbus Streams BluTV‘s Original Linear Channels

Turkey’s largest local subscription VOD service, BluTV, has selected Veset Nimbus to power its original linear action and comedy channels in the cloud.

The linear channels are delivered by Veset Nimbus to BluTV’s OTT platform, as well as to various smart TV apps, including AppleTV, Samsung, AndroidTV, and LG Smart TV.

BluTV has a strong focus on championing locally produced content, and delivers a mix of original content together with leading local and international series, documentaries, and movies to a global Turkish and Arabic-speaking audience. BluTV also delivers live TV channels covering a wide range of content, including action and comedy. All of its programming is available ad-free across multiple devices, including smartphones, computers, and Smart TVs.

Erkut Göksel Çınar, OTT Headend Lead, BluTV, commented: “Until now we have been managing our original linear channels in the cloud using stitching technology. As we continue to expand and add new channels, it was becoming increasingly apparent that we needed a more sophisticated channel management tool that would allow us to do more within our linear feeds, while ensuring our viewers get a premium video experience across multiple channels.”

Veset Nimbus is an easy-to-use enterprise grade SaaS linear TV channel management platform that allows for the easy creation and scheduling of new channels in the cloud. It enables content owners coming from a VOD-first background, such as BluTV, to manage multiple linear channels, delivering high quality video IP streams. It supports the addition of multiple live inputs, graphics, subtitles, audio and SCTE-35 markers.

Veset Nimbus’s playlist editor is being used by BluTV to create schedules for both channels. BluTV’s infrastructure setup is fully cloud-based, providing required scalability and flexibility for the operations.

Igor Krol, CEO, Veset, added: “BluTV is leading the OTT distribution revolution in Turkey and we are very proud to support that push expanding its content format portfolio. BluTV has ambitious growth plans which will be made possible thanks to its cloud-first approach and focus on getting the right tools in place to deliver premium content in an easy, cost-efficient, yet scalable way.”
